How can you beat a decent 12 minute "Bird Song"? And a "Lazy Lightnin > Supplication"? Starting the 2nd set with a "Terrapin" is out of the ordinary and it was pretty decent with an okay Jam at the end. The "Samson > Make Love" does seem a bit tense at the beginning, but Jerry was rippin' it during the nice Jam at the end - I think some times Jerry got on Brent's case for deciding what songs the band should play and Jerry might not have liked that particular selection at that specific point i time. The "Miracle" before drums is not usual, and then there was a cool Jam after going into drums.
For me I always love the space segment but hate when the song out of space is obvious, like the next night when Jerry is playing Other One for at least a minute before the drummers are on stage. On this night I did not hear "Truckin'" until they were actually in it, and it was about as good a version as one could get in the mid 80s.
As a side note, I got to see the Renoir exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston with Phil, Brent and Bobby before these shows and Worcester '84 will always have special meaning for me.
Peace out y'all. Long Live the Good Old Grateful Dead !!)

Anyway the I agree on second night better 1st. Aiko is a killer opener and this seemed to be a little uninspired and the show never really blazes from here. None the less its still a pretty cool show nestled between some great ones.
My favorite from this Oct 84 run are the Augusta shows and the BCT run end of month and beg of Nov were blow outs. Out there but tight as a drum.
